I had an idea over this past week’s Thanksgiving break: blogging 25 days straight until Christmas. In the YouTube world, people do something called Vlogmas in which they vlog (record their daily activities via video) every day until Christmas. With my job and overall life goings-on, vlogging daily [with editing time to consider] is not feasible. But blogging daily, now that’s something I can do.
Err, well, at least try to do.
I figured there was something out there in the interwebz that incorporated blogging daily and this time of year and I was right! Naturally. You can find anything online these days.
Notice that this is an old challenge (#2 and 23 mention Christmas 2012), but whatever. Also, I’m not 100% loving all of the prompts, but I can always switch it up and, if a better idea comes along, I’ll do what I want. Freedom: it’s a beautiful thing!
Join me in writing every day (hopefully!!) until Christmas, even if it’s just in a journal for your eyes only! I forget how much writing calms and relaxes me, which is why I haven’t written on this blog in awhile! Writing has always been a way that I’ve worked through difficult thoughts and emotions (see my post about my long-time journaling); it allows me to get those thoughts out and [somewhat] make sense of what’s going on in my head.
Granted, this is not a crazy difficult or emotional challenge, requiring me to delve deep and work through tough thoughts and feelings. However, I do have a feeling a couple of the prompts are going to bring up some emotions as they deal with sentimental topics that I’ve already had emotional times about.
So, anyways, get your pens/keyboards ready for the next 25 days of writing!
